The Digi Shack Blog Hop Stop!

Hello everyone! This is the next stop for The Digi Shack's Blog Hop! If you came from Kemi's blog, you're right on track! If not, you might want to start at the beginning (The Digi Shack) so you don't miss out on anything! I have 2 samples of new releases for you today. The first is a super cute pair of shoes...who couldn't use that?


I used Kaiser Crafts DP and some cream cardstock. I printed the image 3 times, once on each color (cream - I added the sentiment to this one, dots, brown). I cut out the sections I wanted from the brown and dotted DP and glued to the cream stock. I distressed the edge with Chocolate ink from CTMH and glued that to my striped DP. I colored the tags on the soles of the shoes with a gold metallic pen and the heel with a copic marker. I added Kaiser pearls to the corner.

The second image I have is for a New Year Celebration. :O)
I used copic markers to color in the image. I matted it on gold mettalic cardstock and adhered those onto the purple DP by DCWV. I added 4 rhinestones in coordinating colors to give a little sparkle to the card. Lastly, I added Liquid Glass (Crystal Effects) to the lenses of the glasses and the champagne bottle. Easy peasy! I hope you enjoyed my samples!

***So here is my question to you...having seen those super cute pumps...how many pairs of shoes do YOU have? My hubby is appalled by the number of shoes I have and I have even gone through them this summer and weeded some out! MEN! I have 52 pairs. That just a small collection. ;O)***

Answer my question as you pass through and I'll choose 3 of you to receive a free image from The Digi Shack of my choosing.



Now on to the next blog!

Sooo awesome! I love the sassy shoes, and the New Year's image is so unique - the CE is perfect for that bottle of bubbly. ;D
I believe I have maybe 40 pair of shoes? With coordinating bags. LOL! A girl has got to be sassy, right?

Great paper piecing! Aren't those shoes fun to work with? I love how your champagne bottle looks so real too!

Cute cards. I think I have 18 pair of shoes, and that's after clearing some out this summer! You are the Diva of shoes!

Verda said...

I used to have over 50 pairs of shoes but I had foot surgery and no one told me my shoe size would change or I might have had a second though. What's a little pain!!! Now only about 12 pairs but the price tag on them is huge.

OMG 52 pairs of shoes, how lucky are you, I only have 28 pairs including my boots and trainers, I must admit I have a thing for handbags I just can't walk past them in a shop without buying 1 or 2 lol, Great card's by the way and thanks for the chance to win.

Hugs Marsha xx

Jennifer Scull said...

oh please don't make me count! that would be almost as bad as making me count my number of stamps!!! ;) this way I can pretend ignorance when hubby asks for an accurate number and says I have 'tooooooo many'! :D

how 'bout I just say,
" there are never enough! "

cute cards!

ScrapinShana said...

Wow! 52 pairs of shoes? You go girl! LOL! I only have 26 on last count, some of them I never wear, but can't let go of them. Love your cards, awesome job =)

Christine said...

I have no idea of how many pair of shoes I have. I probably have pair of 52 boots!!! If you asked me how many pair of shoes do I wear regularly? About 5! To my credit, when I went to work everyday, I wore about 1/2 of them.
I don't know why I still keep them.


Blessings,
Chrisitne

Cute cards - love those shoes!!

Jodi said...

These are wonderful cards ~ absolutely love the shoes ~ the paper you used is perfect. How many pairs of shoes do I have..hmm..I would say around 40 (athough some of my favorites have seen better days and won't be around much longer). I used to have over 100 pairs (pre-kids I matched my shoes, purse and nail polish to my outfit every single day), but after having kids, my feet got a size bigger (not to mention wider as well), so my "old" shoes never fit me again and I ended up donating them.

Cheri Howard said...

Really cute cards, Lelia! As for my shoes...I must be a guy or something. I only have 5 pairs of shoes, and NONE of them have heels more than an inch! (Hubby loves it that I don't have a million pairs!)

MsJay said...
